Samsung slider with Android 2.3.4 and LTE for Verizon returns again in new pictures
A few weeks ago, we showed you some leaked photos of a mysterious Samsung device for Verizon.What could be Sammy's first slider for Big Red, this device offers a display that some believe is so sharp and vivid that it has to be Super AMOLED Plus. The phone itself tells us that Android 2.3.4 is installed. The 4G icon in the status bar tells us that the device is running over Verizon's LTE pipeline. And while the design is similar to the Samsung EPIC 4G currently seen at Sprint, the QWERTY keyboard has a few minor changes like an added internet short cut key, an emoticon key that now shares room with the space bar, and new locations for the 'shift' and 'fn' keys.

With all of the high-end specs mentioned above, it is surprising that there is only a 5MP shooter in back, although a 1.3MP front-facing camera is aboard. While there is 2.17GB of storage remaining after a hard reset, we have no idea how fast the processor is or if it is single-core or dual-core. We do know that the device has been certified for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and last we checked, the handset has yet to visit the FCC. So we still need to see the Feds give it a thumbs up before seeing this introduced by Verizon.

**UPDATE**
Some more info on this device is now available, such as the model number which is the Samsung SCH-i405. It has a single-core 1GHz processor with 512MB of RAM. The resolution of the display is 480 x 800 and there is an 1800mAh battery powering the device. Sorry guys, not the Samsung Function just yet!
